Fall Foliage Westchester NyAutumn Leaves Westchester Ny
We' ve asked Jane Danish, the writer of Walkable Westchester, to let us know some suggested autumn walks: Daniel: "Brilliant autumn colours line the Northern County Trailway, which is approaching the former railway viaduct and offers a wide view over the Croton Reservoir. Coming from Taconic State Parkway, take the Route 100 in Millwood and drive 4.3 NM northbound to Route 118.
Take a turn to your right and go 0.5 miles to the car park. Drive southward and take Route 118. It'?s 0.2 miles to the viaduct. In DePew Park there is something for everyone: walking, running or going for a stroll. You can take brief walks to Lake Mitchell, through wetland or to the neighbouring Blue Mountain Reserve for a longer hike".
Take the South Street/Hudson Avenue off Route 9 and drive eastwards and upward on Hudson Avenue. After 0.5 miles, at a signposted DePew Airport Gardens turn right onto Walnut Street. From Peekskill's Metro North Station the parks are reachable by rail. Continue along Hudson Street for 0.7 miles to Walnut Street and the grounds.
From Irvington take Route 9, turn eastwards onto Harriman Road and leave the Hudson River. As Harriman Road arrives at Irvington Reservoir, it makes a right turn and becomes Cyrus Field Road. Continue along Cyrus Field Road to the parking lot on your lefthand side. Enjoy Teatown's latest trailer and find that there are other seas in Teatown that have far fewer people.
Twin Lakes Trail begins opposite the Nature Center and offers walkers a 2.3-mile hike." A 4.9 nifty kilometre walk leads the hiker to six places in the garden with Rock in the name. Turn from the I-684 eastwards onto Route 35. Drive 3.8nm and turn right onto Route 121.
It' 0.1 miles to the Reservation Road parking area. Turn right onto Michigan Road to the Rocks Track and continue to the end. You' ll have to take the amber path to the beginning of the RockTrack. More hiking advice can be found in Jane Daniels' Walkable Westchester.
Last year's second issue of the volume contains information about 200 themeparks with more than 600 walking avenues.
